1 1/2 Cup Oreo cookies (crushed finely)
1/2 Cup Butter
Combine, then pat into pie pan and refrigerate
24 large marshmallows
3 Tablespoons creme de menthe
3 Tablespoons creme de cacao (white)
1/2 Cup milk
1 Cup Whipped Cream
Heat marshmallows in 1/2 cup milk until disolved. Cool. Add whipped cream, creme de menthe and cream de cacao. Pour into pie shell and refrigerate 1-2 hours, until firm.
Note: You can use white cream de menthe or brown creme de cacao if you have it, you just have to be sure one is colorless.
This is one of the easiest treats I make and they never seem to last through the season; unless I hide them. All you need are waffle pretzels, Rolo candies and either plain M&M’s or Pecans.
1.) On a cookie sheet lay out waffle pretzels.
2.) Unwrap a Rolo, chocolate and caramel candy to place on top of each waffle pretzel.
3.) Place the Rolo topped pretzel in a 350 degree F oven for 5-6 minutes. Watch the candy as it melts and pools on top of the pretzel.
4.) Remove the turtle pretzels and add your choice of a plain M&M candy or a pecan to top off the sweet treat.
5.) Place the entire cookie sheet into the freezer to harden the chocolate for 5 minutes. Remove from the cookie sheet from the freezer.
6.) Layer the turtles between layers of wax paper in a bowl. Cover tightly. Keeps for weeks.
